CHEF'S BIO

Sharon moved to San Francisco for three years because she wanted to be a great cook and baker.  She finished her culinary training at a local home chef cooking school but went on to take professional classes at Tante Marie’s Cooking School.  It was both a culinary school and a pastry school and where she took numerous classes in both, but specialized her training in the pastry end. 

She then returned to Pittsburgh where she started teaching full time as a Chef Educator at Bidwell Training Center’s Culinary School.  She was the lead educator demonstrating in a large class instruction setting.  Her team also cooked lunch for the 500+ students at the facility.

Sharon has taught at The Versatile Gourmet and ended up designing and supervising their adult education program.  She  continued teaching in her home and still does so when she returns to Pittsburgh.

Though she can teach anything in the culinary realm, her love is baking. Hopefully you will sign up to experience her teaching techniques and improve your skills.

DESTINATION DELICIOUS
AMERICAN DINER FOODS #2
 

DESTINATION DELICIOUS

AMERICAN DINER FOODS #2

Introducing a NEW recurring series of events in the RP Culinary Center on the last Friday of each month. 

At these events we will create a gourmet meal from a DELICIOUS DESTINATION around the country and world.  Our focus will be on the region through the food they eat and enjoy. 

Tonight, our destination is American diners.  They are a small quick food casual restaurant that is found in the Northeastern United States and Midwest, as well as in other parts of the US and Canada. Diners offer a wide range of foods, mostly American cuisine, and have a distinct exterior structure, a casual atmosphere, a long counter with bar stools where patrons eat their meals, and late operating hours. Diners frequently stay open 24 hours a day, especially in cities and towns with a busy bar scene or with factories with night shift workers.


Diners typically serve American food such as hamburgers, french fries, club sandwiches, and other simple, quickly cooked, and inexpensive fare. Much of the food is grilled, as early diners were based around a grill. Coffee is the ubiquitous beverage at diners, even if it is not always of high quality. Diners often serve hand-blended milkshakes and desserts such as pies, which are typically displayed in a glass case. Classic American diners often have an exterior layer of stainless steel siding—a feature unique to diner architecture.

Tonight's DELICIOUS DESTINATION Menu:

Smoked Tomato Soup with Gruyure Croutons

Benton's Bacon Weave BLT

Sunday Pot Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

bouillabaisse

REGIONAL SPANISH COOKING
PALOMILLA A LA MILANESA
 

Anthony Lopez
 
Presents


REGIONAL SPANISH COOKING

PALOMILLA A LA MILANESA


Milanesas is thought to have come over with the Italian immigrants during the Italian diaspora between 1880-1930 and spread all over the Americas.  It made its way to Tampa at the turn of the 20th century with the cigar industry.  All the Latin markets in Ybor City sold this to the cigar workers.

Milanesa simply put, is a schnitzel or chicken fried steak.  Sure the basic preparation of the milanesa may be similar to places around the world but the accompaniments it can be served with offer an unique change from the chicken fried steak and sausage gravy you would find in American diners.

Tonight’s menu features the Palomilla steak prepared A La Milanesa Ybor City style.

Join Chef Anthony and Linda for a night of Spanish flavors and a bit of the old Tampa Bay.


Tonight's Menu:

Appetizer:  Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms

Main Course:  Palomilla A La Milanesa (Breaded Palomilla steak with tomato sauce)

Side Dish: Spanish Yellow Rice

Side Dish:  Latanos Maduro (Fried Sweet Plantains)

Desert:  Arroz con Leche (Traditional Spanish Rice Pudding)


This is a DEMONSTRATION style class

House wine, beer, coffee and iced tea are included. Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

CHEF'S BIO

Sharon moved to San Francisco for three years because she wanted to be a great cook and baker.  She finished her culinary training at a local home chef cooking school but went on to take professional classes at Tante Marie’s Cooking School.  It was both a culinary school and a pastry school and where she took numerous classes in both, but specialized her training in the pastry end. 

She then returned to Pittsburgh where she started teaching full time as a Chef Educator at Bidwell Training Center’s Culinary School.  She was the lead educator demonstrating in a large class instruction setting.  Her team also cooked lunch for the 500+ students at the facility.

Sharon has taught at The Versatile Gourmet and ended up designing and supervising their adult education program.  She  continued teaching in her home and still does so when she returns to Pittsburgh.

Though she can teach anything in the culinary realm, her love is baking. Hopefully you will sign up to experience her teaching techniques and improve your skills.

DINNER IN BEIJING CHINA
 
*** NEW GUEST CHEF ***
KITTI URBAN
DINNER IN BEIJING CHINA

   
 

Come join Oriental Cooking Instructor, Kitti Urban for an amazing night of authentic Chinese food.  Kitti, will share the story behing the recipes and regale some experiences of her numerous trivals in to the Orient.

Tonight's class: Over 1 billion people cook Chinese food every day in China. You can do it too with ingredients from your local grocery store! 

We will start with a traditional Chinese dumpling and the soy based dipping sauce that will leave you craving more.  Then Mapo Doufu....a classic of Chinese cuisine. The name of the dish means Pock-marked ("Po") Woman's ("Ma") Tofu and originated in Szechuan. (Yes, we know.....tofu can be bland and flavorless.  Don't be frightened by the tofu!  We will make it taste amazing.)  

While traditional Mapo Doufu is spicy, we will make a version that is enjoyable by even the most spicy/heat-adverse. For those of us who are only happy if the spice level makes us sweat, you can customize your own dish to the desired hot and spicy level. 

Given, somewhere your Mamma, or someone's Mamma, is saying, "Eat your vegetables!", we will make a stir fried bok choy. 

Along the way we will talk about types and uses of soy sauce, rice wine, and Chinese vinegars. You will leave this class with an understanding of the ingredients and techniques we used in preparing these dishes.

Here is your chance to get a quick glance into the vast world of Chinese cooking.


Tonight's Menu

Pork & Chive Shumai (steamed dumplings) with Soy & Ginger Dipping Sauce

Mapo Doufu (beef and tofu in sauce) with Steamed White Rice

Stir Fried Garlic Baby Bok Choy

She is the former TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart Living, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree. Virginia has appeared on Food Network's Chopped, Fox Family and Friends, Martha Stewart Living, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, and as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

Frostings are truly the ‘ICING ON THE CAKE”!  But there are frostings and there are frostings.  For the very sweet among us, American Buttercream is for you.  For the more subtle delicate ones among us, Swiss Meringue is for you.  American Buttercream is quick and easy, Swiss Meringue not so much.  The temperature is as important as the technique.  Once you master this recipe you are destined for greatness! 

We will make a Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting for our Yellow Birthday Cake (frozen from the class before), which research tells us is the favorite of all the birthday cake combinations, and make a Vanilla Swiss Meringue Frosting for our Reversed Creamed White Almond cake (frozen from our class before).

Learn simple techniques to embellish your cake so that you can gift your loved ones in a way that sets you apart because you took the time to make it.
 
Today's Menu:
White Sprinkle Cake (Trending as the most popular of the cakes right now!  Once you learn to make the cake, change it up for cupcakes, you name it).
 
Vanilla Buttercream (Used to frost our Reverse Cream White Almond Cake)

White Swiss Meringue Frosting (So delicious it is described as “dreamy”, ‘wistful”, and “luxurious”.  We will use this frosting over the Sprinkle Cake.  It’s the best thing I ever learned)
 
Whipped Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (will give you the basics for American Buttercream so that you can go on to make endless variations. This is the frosting for the Yellow Birthday Cake, An American Classic)

Polished to Perfection.
The cooking surface is polished to perfection so eggs slide easily and sauces don’t stick—without adding any toxins to your food. You'll love cooking with it indoors and out, on any heat source—including induction.

Speed Cool Handle.
Inspired by antique wood stoves and made from stainless steel, the ergonomically designed spring handle stays cool longer—no need for mitts when frying an egg. Feels great in your hand too.
